These cute but sophisticated mini puddings are the epitome of sweet and sour. They're quick and easy to make and can even be done in the microwave!



  • passion fruits 2, halved
  • butter 100g, plus extra for the moulds
  • golden caster sugar 100g
  • lemon 1, zested
  • eggs 2
  • self-raising flour 100g
  • ice cream or cream to serve


  • passion fruit 4, halved
  • caster sugar 2 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. To make the syrup, scoop the pulp and seeds from the 4 passion fruits into a small pan, add the 2 tbsp caster sugar and 2 tbsp water and simmer until syrupy.

  • Step 2

    Butter 4 × 150ml metal pudding moulds. To make the puddings, scoop the pulp from 2 passion fruits then push through a sieve and discard the seeds that are left. Whizz the butter, 100g sugar and lemon zest in a food processor until pale and fluffy. Mix in the eggs one by one followed by the sieved passion fruit pulp. Add the flour and pulse until incorporated into a smooth mixture.

  • Step 3

    Divide between the moulds then sit them in a small roasting tin. Pour water from a kettle into the tray to come 1cm of the way up the moulds. Cover the whole tin with a sheet of foil and put in the oven.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a skewer poked into the middle of the puddings comes out clean.

  • Step 5

    Turn out and spoon the syrup over the top. Serve with ice cream or cream.

*Cook's note*

To cook in the microwave, use 4 × 150ml plastic microwavable pudding moulds with lids. After filling with the pudding mix, cover with a lid and microwave on medium (650w-750w) for 4 minutes. Turn out and serve as above
